International Day for Tolerance

International Day for Tolerance

The day was established to promote mindfulness and faith in human right – the UN created The International Day for Tolerance in 1996 to encourage equality and diversity around the globe. In order to observe its teachings each year, it was established in 1995 as the United Nations Year for Tolerance.

It is clear that a world without tolerance would be an unfavorable place. This belief is shared by those who support this day. It is the belief that such a world shouldn’t exist and that everyone should be able to express their religion, beliefs, and conscience without fear of ridicule or bias. It also teaches that the differences in racial and religious backgrounds are irrelevant to the possibility of tolerance and friendship among them.

Tolerance is defined by the UN as the ability to accept, respect and appreciate all cultures and all aspects of our humanity. It is a human right that all people have to receive. Individuals, groups, and even states should expect to practice it. This thought is centered on human rights. It supports the idea that all people have the right to live peacefully.

International Day for Tolerance promotes the idea that education is key to preventing intolerance throughout the human race. This day encourages us to learn and educate about how to build solidarity among different ethnic, social, and cultural groups.
